The human body is mostly water. If you work out hard enough, you can lose a decent amount of weight and still remain healthy. However, long-term weight loss is possible if you change your calorie intake and the amount of calories your body burns throughout the day. Water weight changes are only temporary if you don’t change your lifestyle. Plus, you might risk serious dehydration if you are already physically active, and you cut down on water intake. Before you go on an overnight weight loss plan, it is a good idea to let your doctor know so you can get guidance regarding proper hydration techniques. Dehydration causes all sorts of serious health risks so make sure you stay reasonably hydrated. You don’t want to get dehydrated because of lower blood volume and other health risks. Also, keep in mind that losing water weight is temporary. You gain it all back once you drink a regular amount of liquids.
Wearing heavy sweat clothes, run for at least 30 minutes. We are not talking about jogging here where you cover a decent amount of ground at a comfortable pace. No-you have to actually run and you need to do it hard. How fast should you run? Enough to where you are catching your breath. Once you reach this stage, slow down a bit so you can regain energy. Once you have regained your energy, push your running to the limit again until you almost run out of breath. Do this intense-relaxed cycle throughout your 30 minute run with more emphasis on the intensive part. You will quickly realize that you don’t have to devote a huge chunk of your daily schedule to intense exercise to enjoy its benefits. High intensity workouts produce lots of results in shorter periods of time. After you run, make sure you drink 6 to 8 ounces of water.
With your water bottle in hand, get into a sauna or steam room and enjoy the heat. For this step of your water weight loss regime, you are trying to sweat the weight off passively. However, you can’t do this step ahead of the running phase. Your body has to reach a breathing and heartbeat rate that is high enough to promote heavy sweating. The hot room assists your skin in sweating. Stay in the room for about 30 minutes. Make sure you take sips from your water bottle so you don’t get dehydrated.
